  1. Hello. I have been experiencing some problems on my computer for about a week now. I looked it up on the internet and I believe there is a trojan/malware virus that has attacked my CyberLink YouCam program as I cannot start it up. It says the shortcut has been "changed or moved, the shortcut will not work properly".
    Any ideas on how to get rid of this?

    • From this point on, please do not make any more changes to your computer; such as install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc. - unless advised by a malware removal helper.
    • Please do not ask for help elsewhere (in this site or other sites). Doing so can result in system changes, which may not show up in the logs you post.
    • If you have already asked for help somewhere, please post the link to the topic you were helped.

    Please review the 5-Step removal instructions and post the logs back here for my review.

    Also, include this scan:

    Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.
    • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    • Click on Delete.
    • A logfile will automatically open after the scan has finished.
    • Please post the content of that logfile in your reply.
    • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[Rn].txt as well - n is the order number.
